Unique Wine Glasses

Like any other drink, you can choose to drink wine from whatever vessel you have on hand, be it a wine glass, a regular cup, a bowl, or even a Mason jar (now that’s a unique one). In fact, drinking straight from the bottle itself isn’t quite as uncommon as you might think.

However, there’s more to wine drinking than just popping open a bottle and drinking its contents. Regular stemmed wine glasses are a great choice as they’ve been designed to fully bring out the flavors and nuances of your wines, but with technology working in leaps and bounds, there’s plenty of unique wine glasses you can choose to drink your wines from instead.

You needn’t look too far to come across unique wine glasses. Even though stemless wine glasses are becoming more and more common in households these days, it’s still rare enough to count as a talking point.

At the tip of the iceberg, you’ll notice a sea of wine glasses shaped subtly different (or in some cases, radically different) in order to retain the attributes of a good wine glass and still push the boundaries of design and functionality.

These are the wine glass options we’ll be introducing to you, so sit back and relax while we present you with some of the most uniquely amazing wine glasses you can purchase today:

Off the bat, you can probably already tell why this wine glass is shaped in such a manner. Instead of having to swirl your wine around the glass, this genius design automatically and effortlessly aerates it for you. It’s kind of like having a personal wine fountain to drink from, isn’t it?

Not only does it effectively aerate your wines through its internal aeration cell, but it’s also a great way to entertain others (and even yourself). The magic doesn’t just happen once; it happens every single time.

Since it comes beautifully packaged as a pair, it also makes for a great gift, be it for an anniversary, birthday, wedding, house warming, or just about anything else. Its elegant and simplistic design harks to a simple truth: “less is more”.

Entirely handcrafted in the U.S., you can rest assured that this quality product is entirely dishwasher safe and durable. After all, who wants to manually hand wash their glasses when an easier option is present, right?

Other than using the internal cell to aerate your wines, you can also choose to put a block of ice in it to cool down your drinks. In case you were wondering if this unique wine glass is only suitable for wines, you’ll be glad to know that it’s an excellent choice for spirits and other alcoholic beverages as well.

Pros:

  • Helps to aerate your wine instantly and effortlessly
  • Makes for a fantastic gift (comes elegantly packaged)
  •  Dishwasher safe
  •  Fully handcrafted (hand-blown glass)

  • Stemless design for added stability

Cons:

  • Bowl of the glass is on the larger side (might not be comfortable in smaller hands)
  •  Smaller wine capacity (7 oz)

At first glance, you might wonder what’s different about these stemless wine glasses. If you take a closer look though, the answer becomes instantly apparent: only a small part of its base touches the surface of the table.

Compared to our first unique wine glass option above, this one aerates your wines quite differently. By utilizing a continuous kinetic action (pivoting) on its pointed base, your wines will naturally receive the aeration it needs every single time. Continuous oxidation helps to evaporate the sulfites and tannins in your wines in order to bring out its full flavors.

This set of two unique wine glasses make for a great present as well. Just imagine the looks of surprise and excitement the minute these glasses are set down on any surface. After all, it’s the simple things in life that bring joy to us daily.

Not only is this pivoting wine glass ergonomically designed for long-lasting comfort, but it’s also made from hand-blown glass. Although this means that there will be some slight variations in each glass, it makes for a truly unique purchase.

Like Chevalier’s option above, this quirky wine glass is also completely dishwasher safe. It combines functionality, durability, and delicate craftsmanship. If you’re keen to invest in this standout unique wine glass, you should definitely consider Culinex’s pivoting wine glasses.

  •  Perfect for Merlot, Pinot Noir, Cabernet, and many other wines

  •  Looks inexpensive (compared to other wine glasses in the same price range)

This is the third stemless wine glass on our list, but it’s altogether quite different from the first two options.

For one, it’s a great purchase for those who want to make use of their wine glasses for more than just chilled drinks. These double-walled insulation glasses are perfectly microwave safe and freezer safe. That means you’ll be able to heat up your drinks and also place them in the fridge to keep them cold for much longer.

Secondly, each mouth-blown borosilicate glass also comes with four opposing dimples. It doesn’t matter which side of the glass you decide to hold. It’ll always be comfortable.

Another noteworthy thing about Moderna’s stemless wine glasses is that they’re also condensation resistant. Now you won’t have to worry about holding onto sweaty surfaces because there won’t be any.

However, these set of unique wine glasses should not be put into the dishwasher. Hand washing them is recommended, but you can rest assured that these wine glasses are resistant to acids, so you’ll be able to use them over and over again without them looking dull and foggy.

Although stainless steel products have been around for quite a while, the creation of stainless steel wine glasses is a little newer. Riding on the timeless design of a typical wine glass, the uniqueness of this stainless steel counterpart falls squarely on the material it’s made from: stainless steel.

Unlike other transparent options out there, what you’ll get to enjoy with this modern design is a sleek satin finish that brings a whole new meaning to the word ‘elegance’.

Whether you’re looking for a laugh or genuinely invested in drinking right out of the bottle, Guzzle Buddy’s wine bottle glass could be right up your alley.

How to Choose the Right Wine Glass

Now, before you start making up your mind, let’s briefly go over how you can go about choosing the right wine glass.

First of all, a glass’ shape is paramount and has always been the singular priority of most renown wine glassmakers. This is because not all wines are the same, meaning that some designs are more appropriate for certain types.

White wines are typically more suited to smaller bowled glasses as it helps to preserve its floral aromas and to maintain a cooler temperature for longer. On the other hand, red wines require glasses with a wider opening that allows for its ethanol content to evaporate more easily. This also ensures a smoother tasting wine-drinking experience.

Secondly, you’ll want to determine just how you intend to use your wine glasses. Would it be for your personal everyday use or just for special occasions? Is anyone else going to be using it other than you, and if yes, how often?

Crystalware is very much a desirable option, but it’s the hardest material to handle since it’s strictly for hand washing. If you’re looking for an easier option, go for a unique wine glass that’s completely dishwasher safe. If kids are present, you’ll also want to consider their safety as well with plastic and non-breakable options instead.

Lastly, you should also consider whether you’ll prefer a wine glass that’s strictly for drinking wine or if you’ll prefer to use it for other beverages as well. This ultimately boils down to your preferences, so do take that into account when shopping for the ultimate unique wine glass!
